Hi, like the others I will call u Andy for now.....

I beg you to read everything posted here on the message board for at least the last two months, then read all the other information available, on the quilt, patients guide, FAQs EVERYTHING. Most of us wish WE DIDN"T have a hystorectomy, and felt that we did not receive enough information about what could happen.

Andy, my options could have been different if I had found this site BEFORE my hystorectomy last year. Honey you are soooo young, please don't give up yet, this is a very important decision that will impact on the rest of your life.

I hope that you are able to sit down with family and friends and discuss this, show them this site, it will help them understand the decision you have to make.

We are here to support and answer questions, I have a saying.......THE ONLY STUPID QUESTION IS AN UN ASKED QUESTION.

take care, hugs & cheers Jo
